Chernobyl- HBO Miniseries

Tbh, although very good, the part surrounding the three divers bugs me, mainly because they didn’t volunteer, they were just on duty at the time. The heroic volunteer idea undercuts the Soviet narrative of the entire series, that participants in the whole ordeal just glumly accepted their fate because the choice not to wasn’t there.

Imagine how disturbing the ‘1000 years of sacrifice’ speech to a room full of dudes who didn’t have a choice would be, even if that aspect didn’t happen. Some puffed-up party official is standing in front of you saying “I spit on the people who did this and I curse the price I have to pay” to the people he’s forcing to pay it. Minor nitpick perhaps but I’d have thought it far darker than what the show gave us.
